[FEATURE] Not sure how we coped without this till now...we now have a…

… tip presented at startup. You can en/disable tips in the options panel. To contribute more tips, please add them to src/app/qgstipfactory.cpp

" openModeller Web Service (though this is still considered"
" experimental)."

"<li>the number, extents and spatial resolution of your format and environmental layers,</li>"
"<li>the number of cells excluded by your mask (if any),</li>"
"<li>in some cases the number of presence and absence points (e.g. distance algs),</li>"
"<li>the speed of the computer the model is running on (CPU, disk access etc).</li>"
"</ul>"
"So if you want to improve model processing times you need to adjust "
"one of these variables. One thing noticed quite commonly is that people "
"use extremely high resolution datasets that often carry little "
"additional information over lower resolution equivalents. For example "
"interpolating widely dispersed weather station data to produce a 50cm "
"raster probably carries little additional value over for example using "
"10m2 pixels.<br>"
"Another area of performance improvement you can look at is "
"preselecting environmental variables using techniques such as Chi "
"Square test. Future versions of openModeller will integrate the ability "
"to do this type of preselection."
